Studying English is the only alternative, which has seemed attractive to me having discussed different friends courses with them. I love writing but I considered this when I first chose BESS and my reasons for not doing it haven’t changed. BESS offers a broad grounding in a variety of what I consider to be highly practical and valuable disciplines. Although I struggled badly with the Maths & Stats and Economics aspects of the course to begin with, I could still appreciate why I needed to learn about them. Now I am majoring in Business and Politics, both of which I not only find useful, but also truly enjoy. The business concepts I study are presented in a way that makes them applicable to any work environment. I think I will draw on what I have learnt whether I end up being my own boss or indeed working in a large organisation. And politics is something I am passionate about. The subject choices after second year allow you to design your own degree, enabling you to play to your strengths and take the subjects, which most interest you. Although the degree seems to have something of a ‘blonde’ reputation within Trinity and furthermore the vast reduction in the employment market, I am still confident the degree presents an attractive qualification to potential employers. And even if I decide not to go down the applying for traditional jobs route, I still feel BESS will have given me an education I enjoyed, which challenged me and which I can use in a manner of ways once I graduate.
